General definition (in Jainism)
Lakṣma (लक्ष्म) refers to “characteristics (of the doctrine)”, according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Homage to that wishing tree that is the doctrine which is certainly succulent with compassion, by which the world is made pure, indeed by which it is maintained. That very same doctrine is proclaimed by the Jinas as possessed of ten characteristics (daśan-lakṣma-yuta), having honoured even a part of which those who have subdued their senses obtain liberation”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
